Irma was born in Fort William on November 6, 1931 and was a lifelong resident of Thunder Bay.

On many occasions, in their younger years, Irma and her husband Jack would holiday aboard cruise ships, vacation in Las Vegas and take trips across the boarder to Grand Portage Lodge and Casino. Irma also loved to watch the Toronto Blue Jays on television and could not be disturbed when she was watching them play.
